Homoeopathy is method of treatment, based on the nature’s law of Cure, namely “SIMILIA SIMILIBUS CURANTUR” meaning ‘Like Cures Like’. The law was discovered by a German Doctor, Scientist, Chemist, Physicist and Biologist Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in 1796, and has been verified experimentally and clinically for over 200 years. This revolutionary system of medicine is Rapid (as against the general perception that hoomeopathy is a slow long lasting treatment), Gentle and Effective. The rightly chosen remedy cures by stimulating the body’s own healing power and thus improving the immunity of the patient.
Why Homoeopathy should be the choice of therapy?
SCIENTIFIC AND CUSTOMIZED
Homoeopathy is Scientific, Logical, Safe, Quick and Extremely Effective method of Healing. It offers long lasting relief and permanent cure, treating the disease from its roots. Its one of the most rational sciences with respect to its concepts of health, disease and cure. It takes into account not only the disease symptoms but also the symptoms of healthy mind and body … ie.. the nature, reactions, likes, dislikes and preferences (w.r.t. food, temperature, climate, surroundings,people and other external influences) of a person when in health. These symptoms helps to identify and individualize (differentiate him from another person ) a person. Thus we can in a way say that get a customized remedy for a person based on not only his disease but also his other unique characteristic symptoms which he exhibits even when he is not diseased. The idea of customization which is being catching up now a days in today’s modern world is actually being used by homoeopaths for over 200 yrs for medical purpose . Its quite obvious and common sense that nothing can be better than customized medicines .
And these customized medicines , “THE SIMILIMUM” (a medicine covering or matching with most of the important and characteristics symptoms of an individual i.e. the patient ), what we usually refer to them as, acts by stimulating the immunity or causing some subtle corrections in the body , thus leading to a long lasting cure.
As stated earlier , we homeopaths believe that disease is a total affection of mind and body, the disturbance of the organism as a whole and not just a part. Individual organs are not the cause of illness but disturbance at the inner level which later on expresses itself as disease. is the cause of illness. so we don’t believe in giving different medicines for different afflicted parts of body but rather give one single constitutional remedy, which will cover the disturbance of the whole person. Homeopathy treats the patient as a whole and not just the disease.
For eg. a person with migraine does have some prior inner disturbances in the body or mind before he or she presents with the symptoms of headache .so we just don’t have to treat the headache but our job is also to strength the body so that slowly the intensity and frequency of headaches keep on decreasing . This cannot be accomplished if we only treat the headache and not the person having the headache . so we take into account the symptoms of body as well the mind . even the modern medicine and medical psychology now believes in psychosomatic nature of diseases.
Many studies have been done to correlate a particular disease with a particular though pattern / nature / fears / insecurities. The power of positive thinking and the improvement in many patients just by changing their thought process justifies the mind body correlation in treatment of diseases. Thus it is impossible to cure a patient unless he is being investigated in totality (all symptoms of healthy as well as diseased mind and body).and Homoeopathy takes into account all of these to make a prescription . Undoubtedly, homoeopathy is the medicine of future.
